LTO 7 Specifications Now Available: Improved Capacity and Faster Transfers

While tape storage has been put to the test against disk and cloud storage methods in recent years, these updated specs emphasize that tape is truly the strongest choice for companies looking to better manage and store secure data both in cold and active data environments. Now with LTO 7 technology, organizations will be able to enjoy more than doubled cartridge capacity from LTO 6, and large files will benefit from faster transfer rates.

let's break it down:

  • 15TB capacity per cartridge when compressed –more than double capacity from the previous generation
  • 750MB per second transfer rates - large files move quickly at this rate, which translates to more than 2.7 terabytes of data an hour per drive
  • Doubling of read/write heads in an advanced servo format which helps achieve higher track density
  • Stronger magnetic properties help increase capacity
  • Backwards read and write compatibility
  • Support for WORM, Encryption and Partitioning (which enables LTFS)

LTO 7 further solidifies the modern use case for tape in storage environments, this new generation of tape technology will offer a high level of capacity at a low cost, and with LTFS capabilities, should be considered as a part of any tiered storage management plan.

With the introduction of improved features in LTO 7 technology, companies looking for a safe and reliable way to save on storage costs will enjoy an expanded range of possibilities for enterprise storage. LTO generation 7 will continue to include popular features that were introduced in previous generations, including LTFS, encryption and WORM (Write-Once, Read-Many) functionality. LTO 7 can write and read LTO 7 and LTO 6 media and is backwards read compatible with LTO 5 media.
